    2. Hi, thank you so much for this beautiful pattern. I think there might be another difference between the chart and the written pattern on row 29 (not the same as the one pointed out by 'dengel' above) - the chart shows: "k1, [sl1yo, brk1] 2 times, sl1yo, brLsl dec, [sl1yo, brk1] 2 times, brkyobrk", but the written pattern says to: "k1, *[sl1yo, brk1] 2 times, sl1yo, brLsl dec, [sl1yo, brk1] 3 times, brkyobrk".
